There is a lot of information out there.
Information about how to do a lot of things.
For some people, that’s enough.
Yet for most of us, we need something more.
FOR WE ALL KNOW HOW TO DO A LOT OF THINGS.
Like losing weight or getting in shape.
And few of us actually take the steps to do it.
To keep to a schedule.
Or to be disciplined enough to do something when we don’t feel like it.
THE CURIOUS THING IS WE WILL DO STUFF FOR OTHER PEOPLE BEFORE WE DO THINGS FOR OURSELVES.
If we know we are being held accountable by someone else, we are much more likely to get something done.
Even if they are not our boss or coworker.
JUST HAVING A FRIEND CHECK IN ON US AND ASK IF WE DID WHAT WE SAID WE WOULD DO CAN BE MOTIVATION ENOUGH FOR US TO COMPLETE A TASK.
Yet left to ourselves, we never finish it.
And then we only feel bad about ourselves that we didn’t do what we said we wanted to do.
Even if we only said it to ourselves.
We know what we followed through on and what we didn’t.
THAT IS WHY SUPPORT AND ACCOUNTABILITY ARE SO MAGICAL.
Even if we know all the steps, just having someone remind us and check in on us can make all the difference.
It makes walking the path so much easier.
We become more motivated because we don’t feel like we are all alone.
Having that kind of support structure is invaluable.
KNOWING THAT THERE IS SOMEONE THERE TO ASK US HOW IT IS GOING IS PRICELESS BEYOND MEASURE.
And being able to ask someone a question just to make sure even if we know what we are doing helps us to have that touch more confidence we needed to stick by our decision.
There are a lot of ways to find information today.
Virtually anything we would want to know is online somewhere.
HAVING A COMMUNITY OR EVEN AN INDIVIDUAL TO HOLD OUR HAND AND KEEP US ACCOUNTABLE IS SO PRECIOUS.
Couldn’t we all use a little more support and accountability?
Is there someone out there that supports you and holds you accountable for something you want to do?
